After Barney ran screaming from the house
, Jim felt the need to investigate.
Peeking into Barney's room, he saw a gremlin humping Barney's wall of porn. It wasn't something that anyone ever needed to see. Ever. Ever.
When the gremlin realized it had been caught, it covered its lower half with its hands before rushing after Jim.
A short chase led to the living room, where Jim found an empty, oversized hat box. He picked it up and turned to face the gremlin, who had climbed up onto the TV to make it easier to jump at the tall guy's head.
"AAAAH!" Jim yelled as he wildly brought the box up. The gremlin's weight as it hit the inside of the box pulled it out of Jim's hands. Before the gremlin had a chance to escape, though, Jim recovered and flipped the box to trap the gremlin under it. The box started shaking. Jim ran into the kitchen, grabbed a fruitcake that he had brought back from Christmas at his parents' house, and ran back to put the heavy brick of "food" on top of the box.
There were plenty of noises coming from under the box now, but it didn't seem like the gremlin was accomplishing anything. Jim let out a relieved sigh and took a seat across the room where he could still watch to make sure it didn't move. Then he turned on the football game because there was no way in hell he was going to watch a box for hours.[OOC: Barney's wall of porn modded with encouragement.
